Snow Venus de Milo Causes Uproar


Maria Conneran and her family created the above snow sculpture last week.  Unfortunately, it seems that someone found it offensive and Sgt. Dominick Sforza was dispatched to request that they clothe the snow sculpture.

To me, this is a case of obvious concern trolling.  What we are looking at is a beautiful piece of art, that is a tribute to the original sculpture.  It is amazing how small minded some people have become.  We should not be afraid of nudity because that is how we all entered this world. Nudity in and of itself should never make a work of art controversial.

What are your thoughts on the above snow sculpture?  Would you be offended to have this in your neighbourhood?
